Endeavour Launch: Two Views

Almost a week ago the space shuttle Endeavour launched on its final mission into space.  Thousands of photos are taken during the launch, both by professional and amateur photographers, but these two photos certainly stand out not only because of their timing but also because of the simplistic equipment that was used to capture the images!


 Professional photographer, Trey Ratcliff, was at the launch site but used a simple 50mm prime lens to capture this gorgeous photograph (a 50mm prime lens is the same lens that my Photo 1 students use during their first semester in photography!).....


...while amateur photographer Stefanie Gordon captured this incredible image using her iPhone!!  Ms. Gordon's images and video have gone viral over the past week.  Her images of the space shuttle are unique in that the launches are always viewed from the ground....never from the air!
